    Comments about Oceanic VEO 3.0 Air/Nitrox Wrist Dive Computer:

    I've made roughly 200 dives on the below array of VEO 3.0 computers. I treat my bottom timers like glass, store them in a hard mask box.
    PRO: What I like the most is the Algorithm. It is not hyper conservative like most "lawyered up" computers. You can actually use it on repetitive dives in the 100-130 ft range and not wish you were diving tables; for example, on square profile dives, I found it similar to "V-planner" set at +2 conservatism.
    CON: It is not reliable. Seriously, never dive it without a back-up.
    Timeline:
    * June 2010 - Purchased VEO 3.0 from Leisure Pro to replace an earlier Oceanic computer which died after ~9 years, ~700 dives.
    * ~August 2010 - Died mid-dive and warranty replaced with new.
    * August 2012 - Died mid-dive and warranty replaced with refurbished.
    * September 2012 - Ascended from 150 ffw & ~80 ft later it still clearly said I was at 140 ft. Completely died after surfacing. Warranty replaced with refurbished (they have a lot of refurbished units to trade).
    * May 2014 - Died again mid-dive. Currently seeking another option to make repetitive dives with...

    Comments about Oceanic VEO 3.0 Air/Nitrox Wrist Dive Computer:

    Overall I am satisfied with the dive computer given the price. However, there are several flaws that this dive watch has that need to be mentioned and considered when purchasing the product:

    - It is not possible to switch between Air and Nitrox until 24 hours passes from your last dive. So for someone who does 1 dive with nitrox and then wants to switch back to Air afterwards, you are out of luck unless you wait 24 hours for the computer reset. The only workaround for this was to set the Partial Pressure to 1.4 and the mixture to 21% Oxygen which would be equivalent to diving air.

    For some reason (possibly of my own doing) my computer got switched to nitrox, even though I wasn't diving with nitrox and I wasn't able to switch back for the rest of my dive trip.

    - Somehow the settings switched themselves on the computer to default at 50% oxygen and 50% nitrogen during my last dive and therefore every time I went below 18 meters depth, my alarm would ring due to partial pressure limits. Had I checked the settings before the dive, this could have been avoided; however, given I didn't have any problem for my first 10 dives I didn't think to look to make sure the settings were all the same.

    Trouble was avoided by sticking with the DM for the remainder of the dive.

    Overall the dive is good for getting basic information, depth, water temp, dive time etc.

    The watch itself doesn't come with a user manual, so I ended up finding one online that I was able to download onto my iPad/e-reader allowing me to learn about the functions of the watch before I went diving with it.

    Comments about Oceanic VEO 3.0 Air/Nitrox Wrist Dive Computer:

    I had an Aeris Elite T3 that I used once before it started giving me weird depth readings. So I returned the T3 and bought two of the Veo 3.0's, one for myself and one for the wife. Now we each have dive computers we can use for nitrox dives. We've only used it a couple of times, but so far it's been great. Depth and temperature readings has been consistent with both computers. With the T3, the data cable came with the computer, but with the Veo 3.0 I had to purchase one separately. I hate that they don't include this simple cable, and for that I knocked off one star. Another negative is that the screen is a bit hard to read when underwater, but I don't blame the computer for that.

    The Veo 1.0 and 3.0 appear to be the exact same computers as the Aeris A100 and A300, respectively. I bought the Veo 3.0 when the price was discounted 1/3 off retail. While I think the Veo 3.0 is a great dive computer, I'd reconsider my options if the price was closer to full retail.
